Wilson, Parra Made to Wear Wrong Jerseys
Jun. 28, 2004
NEW YORK (AP) _ If the clothes make the man, the New York Mets were in trouble Sunday night.
Catcher Tom Wilson and reliever Jose Parra were forced to wear different jerseys than their teammates for the second game of a day-night doubleheader against the Yankees because the Mets didn't bring along the correct ones.
The Mets wore gray uniforms for the opener, an 8-1 loss. For the night game, an 11-6 loss, they wore black jerseys with ``New York'' across the chest. Wilson and Parra wore jerseys that had ``Mets'' on it in script, a shirt used for home games.
Even after the game, Wilson was unaware he had been dressed differently.
``I had no idea,'' he said.
